    I worked at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    If you are looking for a place to learn and grow technically Cisco is one of the best place. I worked with Cisco in 2007 and got rehired in 2011 in different BU. No where else you can get networking gears and time to learn as much as you can get in Cisco.

    Cons

    Cisco is not a pay master, promotions and rewards are primarily based on how you handle people rather than ability, performance or experience. Some BUs are way ahead in paying salary for engineers with similar experience.
